The Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center volunteer team is comprised of adults, college students and junior volunteers (must have completed 8th grade and be at least 14 years of age). Volunteer opportunities are available in clinical and non-clinical settings at both onsite and offsite hospital locations.
Our adult volunteers are offered flexible schedules to accommodate their lifestyles. The college volunteer program is structured according to the college semesters. Qualifying pre-med college students are eligible to apply to work as a Scribe in our Emergency Room after providing a minimum of 25 volunteer hours to the hospital. The Junior Volunteer Program is structured as a two-week summer camp program. Five two-week sessions are available each summer. Each session offers 50 hours of volunteer service to the hospital. All junior volunteers must complete at least one of the five two-week sessions to qualify for volunteering during the school year. Brochures for the program are available at the Volunteer Station and at all local high schools and middle schools after March 15th each year.
The Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center Auxiliary nationally recognized as recipients of the 2002 H.A.V.E. Award (Hospital Award for Volunteer Excellence) is the fundraising branch of the volunteer team. Membership includes nearly 350 male and female volunteers, and is open to community members at least 17 years old.
Members attend general membership meetings, assist in a variety of fundraising events (such as the July 4th Ice Cream Social, the Festival of Lights, the Gently Used Clothing Sale, the Gently Used Computer Sale, etc.) or assist in the hospital’s Pineapple Gift Shop to benefit the hospital and our community. The Gift Shop is open Mon–Sat; closed Sundays. The Auxiliary also provides several scholarships to outstanding high school students who plan to further their studies in the Healthcare field. Auxiliary Membership Applications may be obtained through the Auxiliary Office by calling (757) 984-7192 or the Volunteer Station at (757) 984-7195.
